Residual process solvents in pharmaceutical samples are monitored using gas chromatography (GC) with either flame ionization detection (FID) or mass spectrometry. Based on good manufacturing practices, measuring residual solvents is mandatory for the release testing of all active pharmaceutical ingredients and is routinely performed on samples of process(More)
The Merck KGaA Chromolith RP-18 column is based on a unique sorbent material consisting of a monolithic rod which has a high internal area and porosity, allowing quality separations in a minimum of time. The use of such a silica-based monolithic column has been applied to one of our most challenging HPLC separations, that is the impurity profiling of an(More)
Generic capillary electrophoresis (CE) conditions have been implemented for chiral separations in early pharmaceutical development. The chiral CE separations of several pharmaceutical samples at different stages of development, i.e., discovery, process chemistry, and investigative new drug application, have been obtained using sulfated beta-cyclodextrin(More)
Polyacrylamide capillary gels were prepared with constant (5% C) cross-linker concentration and with total acrylamide concentration ranging from 2.5 to 6% T. At each acrylamide concentration, peak spacing was constant for DNA sequencing fragments ranging from 25 to 250 nucleotides in length. Peak spacing increased linearly with the total acrylamide(More)
The usefulness of zinc orthophosphate and zinc mercuric thiocyanate to make a carbon-support electrode responsive to zinc was investigated. The best results were obtained with zinc orthophosphate, which produced a Nernstian response to zinc in the concentration range from 10(-5) to 10(-2)M. The electrode response was lowered by the formation of acidic(More)
Compressions are occasionally found during the separation of DNA sequencing fragments, particularly in G/C-rich regions and in gels operated at room temperature. Addition of at least 10% formamide to urea/polyacrylamide sequencing gels improves the denaturing capacity of the gel, minimizing compressions. Addition of 20% or more formamide decreases the(More)
